Audio Visual Upgrade

Major Upgrade of Audio Visual System in Southbury Public Library’s Kingsley Meeting Room

The Southbury Public Library Board of Directors in accordance with State Statue authority and responsibility has been doing strategic planning for many years. The Board’s latest long range strategic plan was finalized this past spring. The top priority of the Strategic Planning Committee’s list of strategies is to upgrade the technology throughout the library.  The Board has engaged a consultant who is an expert in library technology to review and recommend updates to the library’s 7 year- old technology configuration.  Funds to carry out these upgrades will come from donations made to the Library’s Gift Fund.  A Library Board technology committee comprised of Board members, staff members, town IT coordinator and volunteers has been meeting with the consultant and the Kingsley Room audio upgrade has been completed.


The first of a series of technology projects is the recently completed upgrade of the library’s audio visual system of the Kingsley Meeting Room. The system is automated, so it is easier to use. The ceiling projector shows a high quality picture and the sound system has been enhanced. There is a new wireless microphone and wireless lavaliere.  In addition, a new Assistive Listening system was installed with four receivers for the hearing impaired.
